For Immediate Release
June 19, 2018
(Maitland, FL) – Consulate Health Care has been recognized as a 2018 recipient of the Silver and Bronze – Commitment to Quality Awards for its dedication to improving the lives of residents through quality care. These distinctions are two of three progressive award levels through the National Quality Award Program, presented by the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL), the leading association for long term and post-acute care. The program honors association members across the nation that have demonstrated their commitment to improving quality of care for seniors and persons with disabilities.
Consulate Health Care is a leading national provider of senior healthcare services, specializing in post-acute care. As a leader in short-term rehabilitative programs and transitional care, Consulate is honored to add another eight care centers to their previous list of AHCA award recipients, totaling 86 Bronze and 11 Silver, for a company total of 97 AHCA award winning care centers.
Consulate’s employees strive every day to make a positive difference in the lives of those entrusted to their care. This national recognition is a testament to their dedication not only to caring for patients and residents like family, but to the overall quality of their journey.
The Award Program has three levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Providers begin the quality improvement process at the Bronze level, where they develop an organizational profile with essential performance elements such as vision, mission statement, and key strengths and challenges. Bronze applicants must also demonstrate their ability to implement a performance improvement system. Trained Examiners review each Bronze application to determine if the center has met the demands of the criteria. At the Silver level, members develop and demonstrate effective approaches that help improve performance and health care outcomes. As a recipient of both the Bronze and Silver – Commitment to Quality Awards, Consulate Health Care may now move forward in developing approaches and achieving performance levels that meet the Gold – Achievement in Quality Award criteria.
“I applaud Consulate Health Care for taking this important step towards quality improvement,” said the AHCA/NCAL National Quality Award Board of Overseers Chair Alana Wolfe. “I encourage Consulate Health Care to continue on its path to achieving superior outcomes.”
The awards will be presented during AHCA/NCAL’s 69th Annual Convention and Exposition in San Diego, California, October 7-10, 2018.
